This was Ironbridge this morning, I live just up the hill from the bend in the road. The river is normally 15 feet below the road level and it is still rising today. It would have peaked midday tomorrow if we had no more rain but it started raining heavily again here 8 hours ago and is showing no signs of slowing. I think we are going to be cut off again and the houses and shops in the picture are going to be in real trouble
Everytime I see that bridge I love looking at all the joins in it. They constructed it as they might a WOODEN structure but in iron. (YES I watched a National Geo special on it!
Hands up all the engineering junkies!)
Stay safe Mad. But then you are quite a bit up the hill right? So tell me.... with all this warning.... have the people near the river moved their belongings? Or at least up to the next floor? Would seem the best course of action.
Take heart peeps... WE are climbing into a heatwave here. Mid to high 30C's. And this is spring. Going to be a NASTY summer.
Just keep swimming... just keep swimming.. just keep swimming....
